ONE DAY AS A LION, the project featuring Zack De La Rocha (vocalist for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) and Jon Theodore (former drummer of THE MARS VOLTA) has inked a deal with Anti Records. The group's eponymous debut EP is scheduled for release on July 22.ONE DAY AS A LION's sound is described in a press release as "a defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It's a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask. According to the band, ONE DAY AS A LION's name was "taken from the infamous 1970 black-and-white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez, featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: 'It's better to live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a lamb.' This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound." "One Day As A Lion" was recorded by Robert Carranza at Ocean Way Recording and was mixed by Mario C at MCJ Studio. The track listing for the CD is as follows: 01. Wild International
02. Ocean View
03. Last Letter
04. If You Fear Dying
05. One Day As A Lion For more information, visit www.myspace.com/onedayasalion.
